1/2 c
sun dried tomatoes, dry packed
1 Tbsp
garlic clove, minced
1 c
chicken stock
1 c
heavy cream
1 lb
chicken breasts, halved, boneless and skinless
"just a pinch" of salt
"just a pinch" of pepper
2 Tbsp
vegetable oil
2 tsp
dried basil
8 oz
fettuccine pasta


1Snip the tomatoes into bite-size pieces.

2Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat; add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

3Add 3/4 cup of the stock and the tomatoes.

4Bring to a boil.

5Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, over medium heat for about 10 minutes or until the tomatoes are tender.

6Add the cream and bring to a boil, stirring.

7Simmer over medium heat until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

8(The sauce can be kept, covered, for 1 day in the refrigerator. Heat again over low heat.)

9Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.

10Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

11Add the chicken and saute, pressing on the chicken occasionally with a slotted spatula, for about 4 minutes per side or until the meat feels springy and is no longer pink inside (cut to check).

12Transfer to a board; cover and keep warm.

13Discard the fat from the skillet.

14Add the remaining stock and bring to a boil, stirring up the pan juices.

15Boil to reduce slightly, then add to the sauce.

16Stir in the basil.

17Taste and adjust the seasoning.

18Meanwhile, cook the pasta, uncovered, in a large port of boiling salted water over high heat, stirring occasionally (about 1 to 2 minutes for fresh or 3 to 5 minutes for dried fettucine), or until tender but firm to the bite (al dente).

19Drain, transfer to bowl and toss with 3 or 4 tablespoons of the sauce.

20Cut each chicken breasts into 2 or 3 diagonal slices.

21Reheat gently in the sauce if needed.

22Transfer the pasta to serving plates, top with the chicken and coat with sauce.
